RE: Looking at new 5th wheels....does anyone build a ?????

Maybe start looking at non conventional floorplans. Front living or even front kitchens like this Keystone. front kitchen Alpine This was longer than you wan, but there are some shorter front living models from Heartland and others. edit add, not a u shaped dinette, but does seat six and closer to your preferred length. Sprinter

RE: Newbie here. Maybe wrong forum but here goes.

There are some small C models with twin beds. Winnebago fuse comes to mind. Fuse Some like the Fuse are even on Sprinter chassis which is smaller, and more economical than the E series Fords. And these have been around long enough for there to be used units available. "Certified" Dealers??? Not really except some that are certified rip offs.

RE: California Non-commercial class A license ***New question***

Never underestimate a petty bureaucrats ability to find ways to make rules for the express purpose of making themselves seem needed.

RE: A couple of distilleries in early April

I was a bourbon drinker for many years, have stopped now but still enjoy a good micro brew beer or ale. Along your route you will find one that has become my favorite. Lexington brewing company which operates both a brewery and a distillery. Lexington Their Ale is the best I have ever tasted, The bourbon barrel flavor is distinct. I have not sampled the Bourbon, but I suspect the quality will be similar. I will be visiting them in April, you may beat me by a month or two.

RE: cell phone in Mexico

Motorola phones are about as close to "universal" as you can get. Even the MotoE series has quad band (CDMA and GSM capabilities). Moto Either buy from Motorola direct, or ensure you buy an unlocked phone from Amazon or whoever. If you buy from Verizon, ATT or another cell provider they will have locked the phone to their service before you receive it.

RE: Can my truck tow this?

So like any other new person that's bought a travel trailer I probably have put the cart before the horse. So ultimately the question is can I tow this... I have a 2019 GMC Sierra Elevation DC 4x4 with the tow package and the L84 engine and a 3.23 gear ratio. The limitations are 9400lb Towing capacity 7000lb gvwr 15000 GCWR 3800 GAWR RR 940 tongue weight The trailer I bought was a 2020 Venture Sport Trek 322VRL with 1010 dry hitch weight 7580 dry weight 8820 loaded weight So I know that the owners manual for the truck gives specs and limitations and states any trailer must have a WDH and then shows 50%? So can I tow thing or what? Thank you all in advance and will appreciate any feedback. You were over at hello. The trailer, at a loaded weight of 8820 should put about 1200 on the hitch when ready for the road. Plus add 100lbs or so for the WDH. The trailer itself will be a balancing act, empty weight of 7500, add 40 for a battery, 60 for propane, then figure what you will for water as well as your possessions. For a 32' trailer pack light. It can be done, but you dont have a lot of extra capacity. 50 gallons of water alone will eat 400 of the remaining 1000 pounds of available capacity.

RE: More Genny wars

Dang, that seems to be an awsum deal. I am thinking a nice slick red paint job and some Honda decals. :h Don't forget the STP sticker, good for an extra 100 watts.

More Genny wars

Just got the e'mail from Home Depot on their Cyber Monday sales and noticed a LOT of generators listed, new inverter units especially some larger Briggs types with 4500 to 6500 watt sizes, and thought this was funny, a little pair of sportsman's with the parallel kit for $599. Sportsman Seems like a lot of new players also with dual fuel units added to the mix now.

RE: Buying a used diesel

This is basically what I am looking at. + Ford And I do my own maintenance for the most part, BUT have avoided diesels. Not afraid to, just prefer quieter and simpler.

RE: Buying a used diesel

Thanks, I had thought the Ford 6.0 was a problem, didn't realize the 6.4 was as well. And I see that the 2011 and 12 6.7 was problematic as well. On the Rams and GM, anything specific to watch for? Ram tranny problems? My 01 had to be changed.

Buying a used diesel

I have never been a huge fan of diesels but find myself looking for one now. I am putting the house back on the market after having pulled it for a year to help out my daughter. We are hitting the road in a couple of months, and dont want to wait for closing, and so am going to buy a used diesel 3/4 or one ton pickup. Will be pulling about a 14k loaded weight 5er, and if a 5er is what we decide we want to stay with, will buy new in a year or so. I have always had Fords or Rams, but am not married to any brands, the only diesel I had was an old 1994 Superduty dually. Hated the noise, but maybe it wont seem so bad now since my hearing is going. Of the trucks in the 2008 to 2014 range, what models in particular had issues. I was going to spend around $25k and no duals so these seem to be my choice slot age wise. In particular at the moment I have been following a 6.4 ford. I know one of the Fords had a bad rep, think it was a 6.0, am unsure of any others in particular to avoid. Yeah , I know, igniting the old Ford vs Chevy vs Ram arguments but not sure how else to ask without without fanning some flames.

RE: WiFi Hot Spot App

Straight talk can be either Verizon or ATT tower based, they have contracts with both companies. As to tethering or hotspot use, they have never condoned it, but could not tell you were doing it until about a year ago. Now they will shut down your data feed if they are notified by the tower service that you are a hot spot user. If you want the data strictly for when travelling, you may want to buy a connected car device and use that for months you are travelling. Connected car Or switch to an unlimited data Verizon phone plan.

RE: Thinking about downsizing to a B

It's back to the Ford chassis, but check the Gulfstream BT Cruiser, or a Phoenix Cruiser. BT Cruiser They have been building these for quite a while so used ones are out there, but owners seem to hang on to all of the "cruiser" models so it does take some looking.

RE: Wrong Equipment?

Looking at that last picture, it appears he has a badly set up WDH. Surprised he even has that.

RE: Question about moving fifth wheel

I guess if you put some skates under the wheels you can move. Those cheap ones from Harbor Freight. Need help with blocking so doesn’t get away. My thought as well, put a sheet of plywood under each sides wheels with a pair of auto dollies under the tires. You may have to add a pair in the front if you cant find someone with a hitch to support the pin and its weight. dollies

RE: Seeking propane dealer

Along with propane dealers, easy ones to find are most Tractor Supply stores, also many ACE hardware and in Va, Southern States feed and farm stores. Gas stations and truck stops usually want to do exchanges on 20 lb tanks.

RE: Any nice new 5th wheels that have cloth furniture

If you are buying new, most brands have the option to get cloth upholstery, so on a special order you should have your choice, if buying off the lot, I think all the dealers go for the leather/vinyl because many see it as a plus.

RE: Nice Looking Classic

Amazing to see an engine without a horrendous tangled mess of wires and vacuum tubing screwing the looks up.

RE: 24 - 26ft Rear Kitchen? USED (With deep slide for dinette)

Basically every product line offers a 24-27 foot rear kitchen model. From the entry level coleman/prowler/springdale models to the mid grades like the Rockwood/Flagstaff, or Passport/Jayco Eagles/white Hawks or Dutchmen Kodiak or Grand design models and from there on to Outdoors RV, Arctic Fox and others. I suggest you select a price range if you are looking at new, and then decide on level of amenities and type of construction (stick and tin or filon) and then check lines from there.
